Creepy Carrot Craft

Phew!  Seems like I haven't had time to sit down and post some of my newest crafts in a long time.  I came up with this one last week for a Preschool-2nd grade storytime.  I am showing the movie Creepy Carrots! based on the book by Aaron Reynolds.
I will also be reading:
Grandpa Green by Lane Smith
Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! by Candice Fleming



Here is the craft I came up with:
What you will need:
  • Orange foam
  • Green yarn
  • Tapestry needle (or glue the yarn on)
  • Brown construction paper
  • Gray strips of construction paper
  • Kidney beans
  • Googly eyes
  • Markers

Cut carrot shapes out of the foam.  Mine are about 3-4" long.  I used green yarn and a tapestry needle to make the greens of the carrot.  It took a little time, but I really like how it looks, and I am doing this craft with a small group of kids.  
I cut sheets of brown construction paper in half and then folding each piece in half (hamburger fold) leaving about 1/4" tab on the back half.  This is how the carrots will be slipped into the dirt.  Glue the sides leaving the top open.  I added a gray trim to make it look like a garden.  The kids will glue kidney beans around the gray edges to make stones.  
Have the kids add some eyes and squiggly mouths to make their carrots creepy.
Enjoy!
